Hey DU, I just realized why Snowden had to leave the Hong Kong....

He was due beer and travel money and many experiences!

Contrary to what is being posted on DU, the GOP is still collapsing

By Matea Gold, Published: June 22

"Charlie Spies knows how to raise money. The Republican lawyer helped rake in $153 million for Restore Our Future, the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC.

But he’s had a harder slog with one of his latest projects, Republicans for Immigration Reform, a super PAC that aims to be a dominant force in the fight over revamping the country’s immigration laws. So far, the organization has made just a tiny ad buy in South Carolina and financed a poll with two other advocacy groups.

“It has been a challenge to get donors on the Republican side to reengage,” Spies said.

Seven months after the 2012 election, a lingering hangover among conservative donors has stalled efforts by right-leaning independent groups to fill their coffers."

EPA: U.S. Drinking Water Infrastructure Failing

"The EPA has released results of a survey showing that $384 billion in improvements are needed for the nation’s drinking water infrastructure through 2030 for systems to continue providing safe drinking water to 297 million Americans"

The assessment shows that improvements are primarily needed in:

Distribution and transmission: $247.5 billion to replace or refurbish aging or deteriorating lines
Treatment: $72.5 billion to construct, expand or rehabilitate infrastructure to reduce contamination
Storage: $39.5 billion to construct, rehabilitate or cover finished water storage reservoirs
Source: $20.5 billion to construct or rehabilitate intake structures, wells and spring collectors

Republicans and Democrats can’t even agree on baby names

From Washington Post's John Sides, Published: June 4, 2013.

"Republicans and Democrats don’t seem to agree on very much these days. They’re divided on the kinds of television shows they watch, cars they drive and beers they drink. And now new research by political scientists at the University of Chicago adds one more thing to that list: baby names."

Interesting read, but not sure what can be drawn from it.

One Nation Under Surveillance

From Brian McFadden

As Snowden & Geenwald's story falls apart, the GOP has their next scandal lined up.

From the Washington Post: Presidential trips cost a lot.


while waiting for the far "left" to start their outrage too.

Today is the Virginia Gubernatorial Democratic Primary.

Only had a choice for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General.

I voted at 2:30 pm on my way back to the office. I was voter # 79 for the day.
